I had to make arrangements for new health insurance recently. I was informed by a broker that my previous insurance ended mid-month, which would result in me not having insurance coverage for two weeks before my new plan became effective. I was also informed that the new health plan (Access Health CT) would not cover any pre-existing conditions.
Fortunately, I contacted State Representative Christine Palm to alert her to this problem. Representative Palm responded immediately and referred me to the appropriate resources at Access Health. I was relieved to learn that I would be covered for pre-existing conditions and that I had uninterrupted coverage with my new health insurance.
I am appreciative of the kind support and attentiveness shown by Representative Palm which enabled us to resolve this problem. It is reassuring to know that we have an elected official in our district who is dedicated, compassionate, and responsive to the needs of constituents. Representative Palm has my vote for re-election.
